[cheers and applause] and they have earned this. i want to say a special word of thank you to two people who lost their lives in the course of this campaign, without whom we might not be here tonight. our friends, paul tully and rick ranger. they are looking down on us tonight and they are awful happy. not very long ago, i received a telephone call from president bush. it was a generous and forthcoming telephone call of real congratulations and an offer to work with me in keeping our democracy you running and effective in an important transition. i want you all to join with me tonight in expressing our gratitude to president bush for his lifetime of public service, for the effort he made from the time he was a young soldier in world war ii, to helping to bring about an end to the cold war, to our victory in the gulf war, to the grace
went to opponents of prop 30. governor brown's tax initiative to help fund public schools. education groups who backed the measure are outraged at the amount of outside influence. >> we had $100,000 put into a school board race in oakland from outside donors. so this is something that the country has to look at. this is about our democracy. it's really not about a single issue or a single race. this is about money influencing how votes are cast and influencing elections unduly. >> governor brown is still at it, touring the state, promoting pop 30, which pollsters say is too close to call. >>> both nationally and locally, this was a critical election. we invite you to stay with us here at nbc bay area and our website, nbcbayarea.com all day tomorrow for complete election coverage throughout the day and night. >>> we have some developing news in the east bay, where a deadly three-car crash has shut down busy vasco road near the city of brentwood. it happened about two miles south of camino diablo. the chp says the driver of a subaru struck a retaining wall and then swerved and overcorr
of california needs to have a college education. >> so i have a question, here from the room. governor brown vetoed both the trust act and the domestic worker's bill last week, how do you feel about those pieces of legislation which are critical to the immigrant community? >> i think that the problem that the governor articulated with the trust act is the one that i just articulated two questions ago, it excludes large categories of serious crimes from the purview, meaning that people from the members of the gangs and convicted as such as well as other serious victim naturals are under the purview of the trust act and not subject to deportation, i think that it is wrong and ignores the rights to the citizens. >> with regard to the domestic workers i am an attorney who helps workers, and enforce their rights on the federal and state law and i think that it is important that those rights be respected. he posed the question to the authors of that law in vetoing it as to what is the impact going to be on some of the elderly and the sick who rely on home care workers in particular, and i guess th
those people said. and the last putting together, willie brown, and i know willie brown for years. and i said, willie, i think the majority of your homeless are mentally ill. he said majority? he said you're way too conservative. he as said the vast majority. he said if i could get them to take their medication, i could save this city millions and millions of dollars. the department of health talks about saving money, you're not saving money. you're spending all of that money and way more in police and enforcement activities. you're putting people in prison for life. and look at the guy who was put in prison who was a truck driver. they couldn't handle him because he was schizophrenic, paranoid schizophrenic. so, they put him in zoll tear i for a year. when he came out he wanted to sue the state. the state wouldn't let him. so, what did he do? he planted his 18 wheeler in the side of the state capital and cost the city $80 million. i just want to mention one more thing, and that is that i have a very dear friend who is indicted for murder in san francisco. he cut off the head of a man ov

brown against elizabeth warren. the most expensive race in the country. the most high profile. it has been a bitter race. if republican scott brown loses in massachusetts, the republicans have a much harder time to win control of the senate. the other one also early in the night is going to be in the state of indiana, this is richard mourdock running against donny. they controlled it for 36 years. should have been a slam dunk but he made controversial comments on rape and abortion now it's at risk for republicans. if they lose both of those it will be virtually impossible to win control of the senate. my third one is actually a house seat. all 435 members up. that's in minnesota, michele bachmann running for re-election, of course, a year ago she was a front runner to run for president now fighting for her political life for her own district in minnesota. >> the states putting up referendum some wide-ranging things. what's number one you'll be looking at. >> we could have legalized marijuana in three states at the end of the night. that's what i'll be looking at. >> real possibility.
